Hey everyone,

I shot this music video parody at ISO 6400 on purpose. The talent wanted the footage to look grainy and I've always wanted to try it to see what it would look like.

Canon 5D2 handheld 10bit 1856x1044
Samyang 24mm 1.4 & Canon EF 50mm 1.4
MLVApp -->Prores

WARNING: This video has some strong language! NSFW
(in case youtube doesn't work) :

A couple of things
  • The black would sometimes turn GREEN for some reason. Especially on the rooftop. I don't know if I had my black levels set wrong or something, but it looked pretty bad lol. I kind of liked it for what it was though.
  • I used MLVAPP to get rid of hot pixels. And boyyyy were there a lot of them.

Let me know what you think! I'll try it in 12 bit next time :D

User Introduction / What's up ML community! - From Los Angeles
« on: March 29, 2020, 08:50:48 PM »
I just realized that I've never done one of these.

Hi I'm Lloyd! I do a lot of filming and VFX work around the Los Angeles Area. I've used ML on a lot of canon cameras (mainly the 5Dmark2). Here's an interview just in case I didn't do a good introduction of myself:

For me, it's actually frustrating that Canon still hasn't recognized this community and keeps crippling their cameras. Filmmaking should be affordable, and I love how this community helps to keep it affordable for everyone! I know the Magic Lantern forum isn't as active as it once was, but I'm still happy to see people post and help each other. It's extremely encouraging for me.

Thank you for everything and I look forward to creating more with you guys!

Duplicate Questions / REVISITING OLD (and cheap) 1D's ??? - FOR TRAINING
« on: October 23, 2019, 01:47:06 AM »
Hello ML family,

Just wanted to revisit this. I know that it may spark some annoyance within the community, but I have been searching through the forum (177 threads :D) looking for the reason no one wanted to work on the 1D's and this was the best that I could find:

The developers were and are adamant about this: Hands off all cams labeled 1, the Cxxx and all the rest of the profi equipment bunch. Period.

I wanted to propose looking into this camera again. I know the seasoned developers are probably too busy to pick this up. This can be a project for the amateur developer community within ML that have been offering help in the forums and on twitter as such. I think it would be a great way to "train" people (like me), and it could come super in handy in the future of ML.

Here are the main benefits of this (that I can think of):
  • They are way cheaper than a lot of cameras. You can find some 1D's on ebay for under $300 USD.
  • Most of the 1Ds use Digic 4 and Digic 5. There has been substantial development for the cameras that use these image processors. Not sure if it would be easy to port, but I can imagine that it would make things a lot easier
  • They use CF CARDS!! Some even have dual card slots. This could be the camera that could break 5K RAW recording XD

Sorry if I sound like I don't know what I'm talking about (i really don't). I just wanted to throw it out there. I ordered a 1DX and a 1Ds3 recently and wanted to throw the idea up in the air.


(The 90D sales must be hurting  :D )

Anyone else not excited at all about this? I thought about getting an RP just to have it as a decent autofocus backup camera, but I honestly don't even want to support them for removing such a feature in the first place. I really don't understand how the EOS RP could possibly match my decade old 5Dmark2 in any other way (maybe besides high iso performance).

I know by now that Canon is aware of Magic Lantern's existence and how much it has done for them. Why wouldn't they add the basic features on cameras that the ML guys have added on an old 50D that was made in 2008? Or better yet, why would they 'lock' their cameras to make it hard for the ML guys to get into? I can't even imagine what 10bit autofocus on an EOS R would look like. I know a lot of people like to use the argument of "Canon is just protecting their cinema line," but would an actual film studio use a hacked camera for a big production instead of an Arri Alexa? Wouldn't they make more money if tens of thousands of people had a super cool/ budget camera, than a few hundreds of studios having a a c100/c300? Most studios that use their cinema line are sad that they couldn't get something better anyway. Even the Blackmagic Ursa Mini can shoot RAW 4K and is cheaper than the EOS R.

Maybe the reason Canon excelled is because of the 2008 financial crisis. Maybe we need another financial crisis to get them to actually innovate instead of giving us bricks that the iPhone could do 2 phone generations ago.

Okay I'm done. (I'm just going to wait for the a7siii or the blackmagic fullframe camera.)

Shot this video in ML RAW. It was simple enough, but using ML was awesome as always.

Canon 5D mkII
Rokinon 24mm 1.4
Rokinon 85mm 1.4
MLV RAW 1856x1238 5:3 (12bit) 23.976fps
MLVAPP to DNG - Edited everything else After Effects

Fedback is appreciated! Here's some of the BTS


"Today, Adobe announced updates to the Lightroom ecosystem, including GPU-accelerated editing in Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw, providing a smoother and more responsive experience. Finally! "

Has anyone tested using cDNGs with this new update? I can only imagine this giving AE and premiere a sort of Resolve like speed if the GPU is actually being used.

Just curious as to what's going on here. I was a complete slave/loyalist to the After Effects to Premiere workflow on my PC when editing Magic Lantern RAW video. I loved the camera raw process using the script importer. BUT...

I finally tried Resolve and was amazed with how easy it was to just import DNG folders with sound already enabled. And Resolve is SOOOOOO much faster.

My Computer Specs are:
i7-9700K OverClocked to 5ghz
2x 1080 ti's

After effects barely can even load one frame per second when playing back 1080p MLRAW video. But Resolve plays with NO LAG.

Does anyone know why Resolve is so much faster? Are my after effects settings wrong? My GPU usage is actually increased when Resolve is running but not so much with After Effects.

Hello ML community,

I was just wondering how long does it take for an experimental build to be featured on the main downloads page. I was trying to explain to someone how to install the 12bit/10bit raw builds on their camera and they were terrified of not using a main build.

Since the 12bit raw video has been the experimental build since March (it's June now) and it has been severely tested in the forums, it would make sense to me to include this as a main build for the less technical and scared people.

General Help Q&A / Updating the RAW capabilities spreadsheet
« on: April 09, 2019, 04:40:52 PM »
Hello ML community,

I would like to help out and take on the task of updating the RAW recording spreadsheet. There have been MAJOR advances in RAW recording and it's hard to figure out what is the new capabilities. I would like to make a central location for everything. I understand that there is a RawCalculator (which is awesome) but the spreadsheet helps out a lot with all of the colors and comments and stuff when trying to consider which camera to buy for MLV.

I want to add:
  • 14,12,10 bit recording modes and times for each camera
  • newer cameras that can raw record
  • max resolution updates
  • top/best/recommended CF/SD card

I mainly planned on using the raw calculator to get this info, but is there a better approach to retrieving all of this info?
